Google Prediction API was introduced last year to give select developers access to Google’s sophisticated machine learning algorithms to analyze a wide range of example data and provide predictions for likely outcomes. Whether you want to create an automated spam and security filter, provide recommendations based on customer demographics, or find hidden patterns in financial data, the Prediction API can quickly make your app smarter.
Today at Google I/O, the Prediction API is made available to everyone alonwith some new features to make it more helpful to businesses including:
- Streaming training data allows for rapid adaptation to real-time data and allows refinement of predictive models.
- Improved user interface provides consistent prediction scores, error reporting, and simplified formatting.
- 99.9% uptime service level agreement for additional assurance.
- Gallery of pre-built third party prediction models (coming soon) will enable the immediate deployment of established models without the need for original development, beginning with these demo models.
The Google Prediction API is the only cloud service that allows businesses to access this depth of sophisticated machine learning with only a few API calls and by utilizing the flexibility of Google Storage. Sign up the Prediction API site for an account.
